Details

BISHOPS TAWTON SS 52 NE 10/2 Downrew Farmhouse - GV II

Farmhouse. Undoubtedly earlier fabric concealed by 1628 remodelling. Right side stone rubble to first storey, cob above, left side stone built, the whole rendered over. Slate roofs, raised to right side with gable end brick stack and axial stone rubble stack backing onto passage with drip and brick shaft. 3 cell, formerly through-passage plan, now with rear access infilled. The lower end may well have once been used as a shippon. Stair turret to rear of hall enclosed in 1628 right- angled 2-storied rear extension (dated beam now covered over). 2 storeys with stairs to attic storey. 5 window range. C20 fenestration throughout, all 2 light casements except to hall and room over which are 3-light windows. Gabled porch to through-passage doorway. Interior: 3 stop-chamfered beams to high hall ceiling. Plank and muntin screen at upper end of hall with unusually wide planks of 6 sections with inserted doorway and part of screen said to be papered over at the left end. 2 small 4-paned windows inserted at right end. Dias settle still in situ with carved bench end. A similar screen is said to survive behind the present partition to the lower end. 2 doors each with 2 large fielded panels to first floor rooms. Two C17 trusses over raised upper end with straight principals and 2 tiers of threaded purlins. 2 trusses over lower end of unusual construction with principals straight at the feet but curving steeply inwards towards the apex where they meet and are peg-jointed together. It is possible that these are reused cruck blades with short curved feet which have been reversed. C20 roof structure superimposed.
